Preview | Derby County v Millwall

Lions face final away trip before Christmas

13 December 2019

Millwall travel to Derby County in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

With seven points from nine on the road, The Lions have hit a purple patch of form in the lead-up to the all-important Christmas period, and now face their final journey before the big day to face Phillip Cocu's side.

Gary Rowett may opt to name an unchanged side for the game against The Rams, with the defensive trio of Shaun Hutchinson, Alex Pearce and Jake Cooper - who scored his first goal of the campaign - excelling on Tuesday night against Bristol City. Names such as Aiden O'Brien, Jiri Skalak and Matt Smith are waiting in the wings should the manager wish to change things around, but Frank Fielding, Jason McCarthy, Shane Ferguson and Ryan Leonard will all miss out.

Tickets for the trip are now off sale, so if you are unable to make the journey, then full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall, with coverage starting around 2.50pm. International subscribers will be able to watch all the action from Pride Park on iFollow - click here for more details.

Both sets of players, meanwhile, will wear black armbands during Saturday's meeting in memory of former Derby manager Jim Smith. A minutes' applause is to be held before kick-off, before the laying of a wreath by former players who played under Jim in his time as manager.
